Correspondence principle, Physics

Correspondence principle (N. Bohr)

The principle that when a new, more general theory is placed forth, it has to decrease to the more specialized (and usually simpler) theory under normal circumstances. There are correspondence principles intended for general relativity to special relativity and special relativity to Newtonian mechanics, however the most extensively known correspondence principle (and in general what is meant while one says "correspondence principle") is that of quantum mechanics to classical mechanics.
